Disney World’s Splash Mountain Has Closed For Refurbishment

This is usually the time of year when Disney World closes down attractions to do some maintenance and refurbishment work on them.

Splash Mountain

And right now, two of Disney World’s most popular attractions have closed for refurbishment. Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom closed earlier this month for a lengthy refurbishment. And now, Splash Mountain has closed for a refurbishment, too.

However, Splash Mountain will only be closed for about a month — it’s scheduled to reopen on February 10th. In the meantime, if you visit Magic Kingdom, you’ll notice that the attraction has been closed to guests.

It’s always a bit of a hassle when a favorite ride goes down, but this is why we always remind guests to check with the Disney World calendar before heading to the parks. And you can always check with us, too, because we’ll keep you updated on every closure at Disney World.

Why today is a BIG deal for the Disney Parks!
